Small Faith Groups Ministry

Are you interested in a way to grow in your understanding of faith and how the Scripture connects to your personal life?   

What is a Small Faith Group? A group of 6 to 10 people with similar life experiences who gather outside the confines of St Mark to reflect on the chosen study guide and how it relates to their day to day life.  More information can be found in the attachment below.

The St Mark Pastoral Council is seeking input from our parishioners regarding a new Small Faith Groups Ministry that will provide opportunities for adults to connect their love of God with their current station in life in a new and deeper way, while strengthening bonds among parishioners.   

We encourage everyone to participate in the survey!

Four Tips to Manage Burnout

Richard Collyer, Archdiocesan Mental Health Ministry      415-614-5593
According to the American Institute of Stress, nearly 83 percent of American workers experience work-related stress across the country. This stress causes approximately 1 million employees to miss work every day and can lead to drops in productivity. If left untreated, it can even lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety. This is why it’s vital that you recognize how you are feeling and take time to protect your mental health with self-care. Self-care is an important tool to help manage symptoms of burnout and regain physical, spiritual, mental and emotional balance.
